Update settings configuration

You can perform the following actions to configure the update settings:

  • Add new update sources.

    The default list of update sources includes Kaspersky Security Center and Kaspersky update servers. You can add other update sources to the list. You can specify HTTP/FTP servers and shared folders as update sources.

    If several resources are selected as update sources, Kaspersky Endpoint Security tries to connect to them one after another, starting from the top of the list, and performs the update task by retrieving the update package from the first available source.

    If you select a resource outside the LAN as the update source, you must have an Internet connection to perform an update.

  • Select the region of the Kaspersky update server.

    If you use Kaspersky update servers as an update source, you can select the location of the Kaspersky update server that is used to download the update package. Kaspersky update servers are located in several countries. Using the nearest Kaspersky update servers helps to reduce the time that is spent on retrieving an update package.

    By default, the application uses information about the current region from the operating system's registry.

  • Configure updating of Kaspersky Endpoint Security from a shared folder.

    To save Internet traffic, you can configure Kaspersky Endpoint Security updates so that computers on your LAN receive updates from a shared folder. To this end, one of the computers on your LAN receives an up-to-date update package from the Kaspersky Security Center server or from Kaspersky update servers and then copies the retrieved update package to a shared folder. After that, other computers on your LAN are able to receive the update package from this shared folder.

  • Select the update task run mode.

    If it is not possible to run the update task for any reason (for example, the computer is not on at that time), you can configure the skipped task to be start automatically as soon as this becomes possible.

    You can postpone starting the update task after the application starts if you select the By schedule update task run mode, and if the start time of Kaspersky Endpoint Security matches the update task start schedule. The update task can only be run after the specified time interval elapses after the startup of Kaspersky Endpoint Security.

  • Configure the update task to run under the rights of a different user account.
